Radiohead scores somewhere between OK Computer and Kid A on their latest release, both in terms of quality and creativity. Listeners still yearning for the melodies of Let Down or the languor of No Surprises since OK Computer's release will think that Radiohead has returned to their senses--somewhat. Those who hold Kid A as a remarkable breakthrough (including myself) might feel that Amnesiac falls short of their previous triumph. The limited edition CD is a must for true fans; packaging has increasingly become part of the group's artistry, and the collector's book is an impressive visual counterpart to the music. After a first listen, standouts include 'Dollars & Cents' and the incredible 'Pyramid Song.' Like their previous albums, though, I anticipate that my preferences will change as I become more familiar with the work.
